If you suffer from allergies you know what frustrations they can bring. Medication for some allergies is available but that does not cure the allergy, it only masks the symptoms. By taking your medication it makes you feel better about having allergies.
The same is true with doing what is right and what is permissible. Even when we do what is considered best practices by society, it may not be the right thing to do. Do our actions really meet the criteria of the Golden Rule? Doing what is right is often not what is easy, and can even require sacrifice on our part.
